About This Listing
Whole apt available. Right in the center of South Beach. Two blocks from Ocean Drive and the beach. One block from shopping on Collins avenue. Fully renovated. Very bright. Brand new appliances.
Newly renovated and equipped 480 sq feet one bedroom to rent by week or month in the heart of South beach (Washington and 8th street).
The one-bedroom features a queen size bed, plasma TV, DVDs, kitchen with brand new appliances, dining room, bathroom with shower, storage space with closets, two large windows, designers furnitures, and access to washer and dryer on each floor of the building.
The apartment windows are a bit broken so we don't recommend to open them. The AC is working well though.
The area is the heart of the Art Deco district in South Beach. You will be one block from the beach and Ocean Drive, a few blocks from Lincoln Road and Espanola way. The apartment is located in front of the Diesel store, Adidas, and a lot of small restaurants and shops are on the block.
Everything is walkable, bikeable, or a small taxi fare. From MIA airport take the '150 Airport Flyer' bus for $2.35. In only 30 minutes it will drop you off 4 blocks from the place. The 25 cent 'South Beach Local' bus can help transport you around the neighborhood with frequent stops. The city's brand new "Deco Bike" rental program just installed a location a block away. This is a fun and cost effective mode of transportation around the beach.
There is a car park one block away for $1 per hour or $20 per day.
We may be able to provide you some street daily parking passes if you are interested just ask me !
We will require a deposit of $500 before the stay which will be refunded automatically by airbnb after the end of the stay.
The only additional fee is a $90 cleaning fee per stay.
Any questions, feel free to contact me.
La experiencia fue muy buena! Tanto Tomas como Fabienne fueron muy serviciales, nos permitieron quedarnos hasta las 17 hs el día del checkout para poder empalmar con nuestro vuelo lo cual fue muy bien recibido por nosotros. El departamento se encuentra en excelentes condiciones, muy bien decorado tal como se lo ve en la foto. Recomiendo ampliamente el departamento no solo por su ubicación (a dos cuadras de Ocean Drive y pocas cuadras de Lincoln Rd) sino tambien porque quienes lo administras se han portado muy bien con nosotros.
I was in the apartment for 2 months. It was literally the perfect location. It was 2 blocks from the beach, yet it is very quiet. Great space and cutely decorated.
Unfortunately it is on the 5th floor and the elevator didn't work at least twice a week. As well, the AC didn't work for a week and I had to find alternative housing. The host really only responded to my inquiries about when it would be fixed, she did not reach out to me with regular updates. This was very frustrating and made it impossible to stay in the very hot apartment. I truly understand things break, but I would have hoped for a quicker turn around time as AC in southern Florida is vital. I received a partial refund, but the inconvenience and displacement was honestly more costly. In addition, the side panels were never put in to keep the hot air out and I had to stuff it with towels to make it work properly. Again, I had to keep reaching out to see when it would be completed, but I finally gave up when I didn't hear back.
Overall I thought it was a great place for the price, but I was extremely frustrated by the communication and the fact that no AC for a week was not treated with any kind of an immediate response.
Just a few words to give a bit more background to Aviva's review.
- We were out of the country for a few days so could not get the AC fixed as fast as we wanted. I must say our AC guy was also at fault as he told us twice he was coming and never did. so in the end we had to go there during the week-end, check the old unit, go buy a new one, deliver it to the apartment, remove the old one which was really heavy, and change it,which we did in two days once we were back.
- To give a sense of the gravity of the situation., the issue with the AC happened at the end of February 2015, which was not exactly the hottest and most unbearable period in Florida.
- Aviva has sent me emails, texts, to me, my husband my friend and I have tried to be as responsive as possible. Just we were not in the country for 4 days and the AC guy could not come right away.
- I reimbursed Aviva half of the daily price for the apartment for all the days when the AC was not working, which I believe is fair as she was still able to enjoy the apartment and the heat was really bearable. but apparently she still feels it is not enough...
- as a side note : when we came to the apartment to repair the AC, Aviva and her boyfriend (she actually never told me they would be two people stayng in the apartment), had left many plastic bags full of garbage outside in the apartment, which is not a great thing to do in Miami where there are a lot of bugs that come as soon as there is food outside. Overall it's not really clean to leave a place for a few days with all the garbage out.
The flat was nice, clean and suited well for our needs. It is exactly what you see in the pics and in the description. The beach is only a short walk away and there is a parking building right across the street (street parking also available but difficult to find available spot later in the evening). The A/C worked until the last couple days but we survived and I'm sure it only needed a quick fix. Contact person Benjamin was easily reached by phone and email and he was helpful. :) There was a bit of a problem at the start of our stay as we were threathened (by some condominium association person) to be evicted since we were not renting for a month but only for 9 days, but luckily we got to stay until the end of our holiday. So recommended to rent for at least 30 days or at least pretend to do so if neighbours ask. In addition, the internet didn't work during one day,but Marie reimbursed some expenses due to that. These above mentioned issues weren't, however, huge problems so we do recommend this place (thank you Marie and Benjamin) and Miami Beach. :)
I couldn't believe I stayed in Marie's beautiful flat for 39 days! Marie is a great host. The flat is tastefully decorated and stylish. I feels like I am home, it is located in the most convenience and safe location. 3 mins walk from south beach and rest. and retails along washington ave.
Highly recommended and I will definitely stay with MARIE upon my next visit!
Thanks so much Marie for being a great host!
Abbiamo trascorso 10 notti in questo bellissimo appartamento a portata di vacanza ! La vicinanza all oceano è veramente di un paio d'isolati. L appartamento è come appare dalle fotografie ed in più estremamente silenzioso, essendo al 4º piano sopra la strada. L appartamento è completo di tutti i confort pentole stoviglie biancheria, dvd , wi-fi . Trovate anche un comodissimo ripostiglio per gli oggetti da mare o nel nostro caso longboards !!!
Apartment complies with photos, conveniently located 2 blocks from Ocean Drive. The windows don't open well and the shower pressure is low, anything else to report. The appartment is clean and building is quiet.
Appartement bien situé et bien agencé mais la télé ne fonctionne pas la climatisation est très bruyante et il y a une odeur désagréable dans l appartement .
De plus la propriétaire n avait pas prévenu la personne sur place pour nous accueillir, il n était pas du tout au courant de notre arrive donc le ménage n'était pas fait et les anciens locataires toujours présent a notre arrivé.
